If you’re thinking of building a turbocharged engine, the information in this video will save you a lot of headache and sorrow. It will also save you some money.
I spent almost 2 years building my turbo Fairmont and I love the way it turned out. Sometimes though, I wish I had never gone for a turbo. Turbos are great, but they can be a real pain to set up properly. If you do decide that turbo is the way you want to go, I hope this video helps you on that journey.
